It's been busy around here so I haven't made much progress on my current WIPs, the kids at the lunch park aren't even impressed! So I thought I would show you a future WIP, the fall KAL. I really hope you'll join me on this adventure. I fell in love with Hiro as soon as I saw it! And Julia is pretty fabulous too. I had been looking for a color work sweater to knit for the boys this fall but I wasn't having much luck with the weight yarn I wanted to use. Along came Hiro and Hiro Petite. Let me start by saying, I've never done color work. It just seems like the right time to tackle the skill! So if you don't know how, we'll try this out together. And Julia has offered help if we get stranded (ha!).
For the Hiro adult sweater, it takes 4 colors. Hiro Petite takes 3. Knitted Wit's current color collection has 12. That's a lot of options my friend! Below I've put together some color options, mainly in 3's. It's easy enough to find a 4th to add for the adult sweater.
On to color choices! The color on the left is the main body color. Julia suggested having the highest contrast be between the main color and the first contrast color. Above is Canopy, French Kiss, Thistle.
What do you think? I would love to hear your color combination ideas! I've pulled a bunch of colors, and I'm going to start little swatches. I can practice color work and see what the colors look like together. I'd like to take pre orders for this KAL so I can have it all ready to go for you on cast on day. Let me know what combination you like and the size and I'll get to dyeing!
